Dear members, is google chrome out yet? Their is some out fit offering a version of it!
Thanks member for you're generous help.
ooooo! A new browser that I haven't heard of!
... if you have an Intel Mac, there is Crossover Chromium you can try out ...
Another way to try it out is HERE
If anyone tries it out, please post up any reports?
I tried it on my PC and didn't care for it, wouldn't display a lot of the pages I visit and I didn't see any specific advantage that would be of use to me. I uninstalled it after a week or so. I still love Firefox, although I'm not claiming to be any type of browser geek or anything.
If you really want to try out Chrome, either find a Windows box or run it in a Windows VM. The current "solutions" to run it on OS X are terrible.
That being said, Chrome is a quality product, and I'm very excited for the Mac launch this summer. The process isolation and sand-boxing are both killer features IMHO, and watching Safari get hacked in 5 minutes at PWN2OWN a week or so ago doesn't really make me think Safari is a secure browser.
As for Chrome not rendering pages correctly, I haven't seen much of that, and since it's built on Webkit, it's pretty much the same experience (in terms of rendering).
I found the Windows version incredibly slow, slower than IE7. I'd stick with Safari 4.
lol yea right.
ignore this guy his results are not typical.
With all respects, Firefox and IE were also hacked on that day
that has nothing to do with his point which is the only browser that survived, chrome, is not out for the mac yet.
Yeah, I read some online press that people couldn't touch Google Chrome, but to be honest, I just put that down to PR from Google HQ
